Scharner: I joined West Brom as central midfielder

Paul Scharner says he's signed for West Bromwich Albion to play central midfield.

Scharner joined the Baggies on a Bosman from Wigan Athletic.

"That's what I've missed over the last couple of years.

"Now it's up to me because I'm signed as a midfielder and this is my best position.

"I'm looking forward to it.

"I've signed as a central midfielder and that is why I joined West Bromwich because I want to take the chance to show everyone this is the right position for me."
